I'm still somewhat fuzzy on the DVD iso sizes myself, and it depends on
how you measure the size (du, vs ls -al, vs ls -alh, vs....)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD-R#Recordable_DVD_capacity_comparison
seems to indicate that 4.38 gigabyte (or 4.71 in manufacturer sizes
divided by 1K rather than 1024) is the upper limit.  So however we want
to measure/reflect those sizes, that's what we need to come in under.

This is really for when we gpg sign CHECKSUM files, since that involves
manual shuffling around of files and potential for things to go wrong.
Basically test that the isos posted match the CHECKSUM posted.

It is somewhat possible to do this during compose, but the failure case
is hard to define, and there is no facility to do this currently in the
compose code.  It is more easier to do when there is an exploded repo of
the media set available to run repoclosure on, so we can likely skip
this test for now, or I can do it where the compose happened and post
results.

Ditto.
